BMSC 622 - Readings in Movement Science - Critically Evaluating the Literature

Credit(s): 3
Component: Lecture
This course provides the student with the opportunity to actively practice and develop the essential skills necessary for effectively summarizing and critiquing original research articles in the broad field of movement science. The course takes the format of a “journal club”, where students present and discuss assigned readings, with the objective to facilitate the development of new skills in review, critical appraisal, interpretation, and assessment of the scientific literature through active participation in group discussions in class. Weekly written assignments reinforce development of these skills. Importantly, the purpose of the course is not to deliver content related to any specialized field of movement science, but rather, to examine a wide array of scientific literature to promote and encourage the development of critical appraisal skills necessary for any scientist.
